Faced with a derogatory message, it is quite possible to act by blocking its author. Nothing could be simpler: you can hide a person by going through one of their comments or perform the manipulation directly within YouTube Studio.

3. Hover over the post and click on the three small vertical dots icon that appeared on the side. Select the “Hide user comments on channel” option.



You can also go through the YouTube Creator Studio dashboard. In that case, here's what to do:
